Leeds Castle Triathlon

Delighted that my son Charlie competed in the triathlon sprint here at Leeds Castle Kent and won the under 16 category.

They started with a swim in the moat around and under the castle. Charlie reckons he did so well overall because of his Roadfox wheels, but I believe his legs also helped! He overtook so many of the previous category that started 15 minutes before him, whilst on the cycle section, and felt he had fresh legs for the final run to the finish.
Overall he was 14th out of 326 finishers. His time was 1hour 27minutes for the 750m/ 26k/ 5k.

Leeds Castle is a great venue for the event.
He hopes to be back next year 27th June 2015  Sprint Tri (750m/26k/5k)
